Casio aren't planning to follow Sony down the path of interactive digital photo frames - as Sony have done with their Dash, adding Chumby widget support - but instead see the devices as a passive form of entertainment. In an interview with Tech-On!, Casio described their intent as turning the digital picture frame into the "third screen", one which can "sensitively adapt to the users' lives and environments." They've also put together a prototype to show that passive doesn't have to mean passé.
Amidst all of the cameras that we saw unveiled at PMA 2010 over the last few weeks Casio quietly slipped a couple new cameras into its EXILIM line. The two new cameras are point-and-shoot units with a bevy of automatic features for easy use called the EX-S7 and the EX-Z35.
Casio's concept GPS-enabled camera, shown at CES 2010 last month, has been given a release schedule and estimated price tag. Photography Bay have been pestering Casio for details at PMA 2010, and the company have confirmed that the Casio EX-10HG is expected to go on sale in October this year, costing around $400.
In my neck of the woods, golfing is a big deal; within a few miles of my home are two full 18-hole golf courses and every other truck I see is towing a golf cart. I hate golf myself, I can’t even play putt-putt. My 7-year-old usually beats me. If you are one of those people who can’t wait to get on the golf course and are always looking for a gadget to improve your game a new camera from Casio called the Exilim EX-FS10S is now available.

DSLR cameras are cool and the geeky among us want something with tons of features no matter if it costs us a week's pay. However, there are those out there that want a cheap camera that is easy to use and will fit in a pocket to carry around on the go.
Casio Japan have unleashed a pair of new digital cameras, the Exilim EX-Z450 and EX-Z90, each toting 12.1-megapixels and various automated features which hope to take the setting-headache out of point-and-shoot photography. The two snappers can each identify faces together with working out the best settings for landscapes, pets, fast-moving objects or other subjects.
Casioannounced a new projector to go along with their other slim models called the XJ-S43W today. The biggest change? This model works much better with widescreen and HD sources when compared to previous models.
It's seems to be a morning of digital cameras, with Casio the latest to whip out their pocket-snapper. The Casio EXILIM EX-H10 has a 12.1-megapixel CCD paired with a 24mm 10x optical zoom, and while it may not have the AMOLED panel of the Samsung WD1000 it does manages to squeeze a similarly-sized 3-inch LCD into its sub-1-inch thick chassis.
Casio has previously launched a promote web site to detail its Dynamic Photo function that enabling photo doctoring on-the-fly, a simple function that can extract moving subject, for up to 20 consecutive images, then superimpose into a background of your choice. A free online web service that offers video conversion for a variety of movie data is now available at its Japanese site.
The new feature looks fairly simple to operate - Select the “Dynamic Shoot” function to capture images with subject against a background, and another with the background without the subject. The camera will automatically extract subject from the background, create a cut out moving subject to be placed into a variety of backgrounds during playback. The placement of the subject can be easily adjusted to match the scene of the background. Also, you can select one or up to twenty moving frames for each task. An online data conversion service, available at no extra cost, will further optimize the resulting motion image for the uses of digital media devices or formats such as photo frame, e-greeting, auction or mobile phone.
